    Millions of people around the world are emerging from poverty thanks to rising economic freedom. But by sharp contrast, America’s economic freedom has been on a declining path over the past decade.

    America’s declining score in the index is closely related to rapidly rising government spending, subsidies, and bailouts.

    According to the 2016 Index of Economic Freedom, an annual publication by The Heritage Foundation, America’s economic freedom has tumbled. With losses of economic freedom in eight of the past nine years, the U.S. has tied its worst score ever, wiping out a decade of progress.

    The U.S. has fallen from the 6th freest economy in the world, when President Barack Obama took office, to 11th place in 2016. America’s declining score in the index is closely related to rapidly rising government spending, subsidies, and bailouts.

    Nobody seems to be interested. Maybe it's because it was a given from day one. It was obvious from the beginning that Obama is an economic illiterate, believing deeply that government should control every aspect of the economy.
